Should go all in with the current bullpen today because they can get a bunch of extra pitchers from the minors on the first of the month tomorrow.

Is there a rule that prohibits 40 man roster additions in September? I'd like to see Alex Powers get a look.

I'd like that too. I'd drop Mella from the 40 and add Powers and bring him up. However, I don't think the Reds will do that. I think they let Powers got to Free Agency and they lose him.

Wasn’t he accused of tipping pitches against Washington? He had a couple very nice outings right after the trade but since the Cubs series it’s been rough. Part of me wonders if he doesn’t believe in this seasons team and he’s tinkering. New league and all.

Adds character to the formerly more standardized all purpose stadiums, and gives more of a home field advantage. I like it!

Look at the location of his pitches. Every single ball that's been crushed today has been center cut batting practice. May be tipping as well but to me it's a location issue more.

I think tipping pitches is overblown. I’m not sure it happens that much and even if it does they still have to hit it and don’t know the location. I think the Indians saw something and didn’t want him. Maybe an injury or he’s got some other issue. They sure were looking to dump him as soon as they could.

If that's the case (I'm only keeping up online, can't watch) then it may be an injury.

This offense is pretty bad most of the time but in their defense, it's probably hard to get too excited when your starting pitcher is out there throwing BP for like the 4th time in his last 5 starts.

You really have to wonder why the Reds would change their top prospects entire hitting approach halfway through the year. He was doing pretty well although his power wasnt showing up much. Hes clearly lost all confidence. The tools are obviously there but it's been majorly disappointing to watch. Just hoping he can figure it out before the year is over otherwise we really dont know what he is going into next year.

I disagree that he was doing well. He was just a warm body. Not good, not bad. Between him and Reds they want him to be an impact guy. I appreciate that. Now, I'm not so sure about doing it during the season, but I guess we aren't making the playoffs anyway.

Yeah, it makes sense. Just think it should have been an offseason change. I guess he just didnt feel comfortable which is not good but the change has been a rough go so far to say the least.

Yeah the swing change thing seems like a red flag, not sure what the thought process there was. Definitely more of an offseason thing.

I had the thought today that maybe they dump Turner Ward and elevate Eckler to hitting coach for next season.

That’s odd positioning then. In a ballgame where the run from second would win the game I get it. But already down 2 with another runner on third that positioning makes little sense. Gonna give up any flyball to Center in order to prevent a 4th run? Usually with 2 outs you fall back to normal positioning.

Reds score crooked numbers twice, and Cards respond with crooked numbers each time in the next half inning, not to mention the Cards scoring in 4 other half innings. That's about all you need to know as to why the two teams are where they are in the standings!
